Mysan_brewing (60) - - APR 30, 2013
Smells sweet, almost like cotton candy with a hint of metal. Golden, clear color. Taste is almost missing, and the taste that is there is not anything special. A pilzner at best and I don't like pilzners... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50 cl bottle from Lery Mat Bergen. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Malty and grainy aroma. Taste is bittersweet. A bit flat.

Dandm (104) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2016
Clear light blonde, well carbonated. Malt, fruit, honey. Watery mouthfeel but leaves a buttery feeling in the mouth. Quite a nice easy drink after a long day.

LazyPyro (662) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden colour with a nice smooth creamy white head, long lasting too. No strong aromas from this, just some malt. Flavour is much the same, mainly malt but quite weak really, disappointing. On the plus side it is an extremely smooth beer. Kind of floral aftertaste, light bitterness. Overall nice but disappointingly weak and lagerish.

Sigmund (6895) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
500 ml bottle, from Matkroken Stokka. BB date 28.04.2014. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of grain and dust, a hint of fruit. Fairly refreshing flavour, lagerish with a slight citrussy fruitiness. Will rerate when I have a fresher bottle.

shoestring (367) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Dark amber lager colour. Head retention poor on this pint. Low carb. Actually easily sunk. Mild orange bitterness. Dry palate in finish. Would take again for sure

Bottle. Excellent golden beer; nice carbonation and quite long-lasting mouthfeel. All-rounder.

blackradioboy (181) - SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle from Asda (£1.50). A few years ago at the Scottish Beer Fest in Edinburgh, I had a pint of CG and it was one of the best beers I've ever had. This bottled version is quite the let-down - pretty watery and feeble in comparison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
